Crisis over Liberal decision not to run Perth by-election candidate deepens. Wilson Tuckey was fuming

Show time: Mathias Cormann arrives at the Liberalsโ€™ meeting in West Perth to discuss the decision not to run in the Perth by-election.THE crisis engulfing the Liberal Party over its Perth by-election no-show fiasco has deepened, with one senior Liberal now threatening to take the matter to the Corruption and Crime Commission and another moving to overturn the decision at State council.

Former Oโ€™Connor MHR Wilson Tuckey was fuming yesterday after a meeting in Mt Lawley scheduled by the Perth Division to discuss the controversial decision not to contest the seat of Perth was rescheduled at the 11th hour.

Mr Tuckey said the switch had made it impossible for some party members to attend, denying them the chance to front WA Liberal Senator and powerbroker Mathias Cormann โ€” as well as State president Norman Moore, State director Sam Calabrese and selection committee chairman Jeremy Buxton โ€” about not running a candidate in Perth.
